An Update on Schizophrenia Management

It is estimated that up to 27% of patients with schizophrenia display negative symptoms that persist for 6 months after initial stabilization following a first psychotic episode. Such symptoms account for much of the long-term morbidity and poor outcomes seen in patients with this condition. Antipsychotic medications can ameliorate or greatly improve the positive symptoms of schizophrenia; unfortunately, these agents typically show little effect on either primary or persistent negative symptoms.

Chronic Pain Case Clinic

By definition, chronic pain burdens patients, impairing their ability to work and carry out other activities of daily life, hampering sleep, exacerbating concomitant illness, and generally diminishing quality of life. For clinicians, managing long-term pain can be tremendously frustrating, and the subjective nature of pain perception means that even assessing response to treatment can be difficult.

Each activity worth:

Alzheimer's Case Clinic

Contemporary understanding of Alzheimer's disease (AD) has evolved, so that it is now recognized as representing a continuum from a preclinical stage to mild cognitive impairment and finally to dementia. Similarly, diagnosis is evolving, sometimes requiring an array of assessments from a simple medical history to advanced imaging technologies and the use of biomarkers.

RSV Infection in Infants: Implementing Optimal Strategies

Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) can result in an infection that can be severe and life-threatening in high-risk infants. Pediatric clinicians who are up-to-date about risk factors, current recommendations for prevention and management of RSV infection, and strategies for parent counseling can aid parents in effective decision making and help improve outcomes in their pediatric patients.

Stroke Prevention in Atrial Fibrillation: Strategies for Optimal Anticoagulation

In patients with atrial fibrillation (AF), the risk of stroke continues to be under-recognized and anticoagulation underused, with many missed opportunities for preventing strokes. Risk stratification tools help evaluate the risk for stroke and bleeding, and newer anticoagulants may increase prophylaxis and improve adherence. Strategies for optimal stroke prevention, risk stratification, and patient education can enhance outcomes in patients with AF at risk for stroke.
